My wife run the wheels off her vacuum cleaner but the motor was still good. So I thought I would try a little experiment. I took it apart (tearing stuff up is always fun) for the motor.
The motor and squirrel cage are all-in-one unit. I built a box for it out of scrap wood, the bottom part of the box is hollow with a 1 ½ inch hole in the bottom and it just sits on the Dust Deputy. It works great, in fact if when I vacuumed the floor with it if it sucked up a chunk of wood it would swirl around the top instead of falling down. So I have to turn it off so it will fall on down into the can. I have only used it on the band saw and the floor and it works great for that.
